It’s convenient and it avoids shopping at night with whining kids! But in order to get through this hectic holiday season, you need to eat a healthy lunch, sleep well and exercise!

Healthy meals don’t have to be complicated! You just need to have the ingredients on hand! One of my favorite easy and fast lunch recipes are salads! They are easy to prepare and healthy!
